First I've heard about it.

Hearing a lot about a "Vatican Campaign" to stop Eluana's killing. The leftists in Parliament are accusing Berlusconi of being a shill for the Vatican.

Left-wing commentators accused Mr Berlusconi of succumbing to Vatican pressure to intervene at the 11th hour, and fuelling the debate over Vatican "interference" in Italian affairs on issues from euthanasia to gay marriage and contraception.

I work next door to the Pope in a pro-life office that has been active in this case, and this is the first I've heard of a "Vatican campaign". If there was going to be a Vatican campaign, you would have thought we would have heard about it.

Maybe a nice start to the "campaign" would have been for the Pope to have mentioned her name.

Just once.

...and contraception.

That's one they will just never understand.
